Random Thoughts Thursday

Coherent thoughts aren't coming easily to me this morning, so....that means you get a random post!  Strap yourself in and enjoy the ride through my warped and relatively snarky mind:

I am packing for the second week in a row.  T and I are headed up to Michigan for his brother's bachelor party and for me to spend time with the fam-in-laws, which will be fun, but I hate packing so...I'm packing for the second time in a row in two weeks.  Blah. 

Trips out of town mean laundry.  I don't like laundry either. 

One of the down sides to living in the Midwest....tornados.  Granted, I grew up in Alabama, so I should be used to tornados, but seriously, we had warning after warning yesterday.  It got pretty scary.

I spent the day at home yesterday waiting on some warranty people to check out things at our house, so that meant I got lots of time to watch the different weather people on each station.  And they were on.  All day.

I find it amusing that news anchors now use Facebook as a way to report to us, meaning they read posts people have put on their station's wall as a part of their news cast.  Really?  You can't do better than that and actually talk to real people?

I find it even more amusing that people were upset with said news stations for interrupting Oprah's final show and Dr. Phil to let us know about tornado warnings.  Life or death?  Or watching Oprah preach to you for an hour about how wonderful her show was?  Hmmm...priorities...

I am very grateful that no one I know was seriously hurt or is homeless due to the weather and I send out my prayers and thoughts to those who were hit with damage or lost a loved one due to this horrific weather.  I also pray that we get a break from all of this.  Because we all seriously need it.

I have a card next to my desk at work that was made by my niece Roo for my birthday.  Inside it she wrote I love you and has a picture of me and her playing.  I just looked at it, and it made me smile. 

I'm looking down at my desk calendar and see this disgusting brown stain on the paper, and I wonder if its salad dressing or coffee.  Either way, it looks gross, but I can't remove it until June when I get a new page.  And I have random numbers written on the page, too.  Did I think at one point in time I would remember why I wrote them down?  Because, for the life of me, I have no idea what relevance they have to my work.

Paramore just came on my Pandora and I had to change it immediately.  I can't stand Paramore.  Almost as much as I despise Evanescence and John Mayer.

I think I'm going to end this post.  And I hope I get some inspiration to write about reunions for the Spin Cycle by Sprite's Keeper (it's back!!!)  Maybe all of these random thoughts will get that hamster running on the wheel in my head, and I can function at a normal level.  We'll see...

Hope everyone is safe and has a great Thursday! 



  1. It's like you can read my mind!! Lol no really most of this I could have written. Glad y'all are ok. There were tornadoes in California yesterday too! There is some crazy weather going on! And for the record I am neither a parables or evanescence fan. Have fun at the in laws!

  2. The tornadoes have had me worried about the Midwest! Glad you're okay. Your forcasters seem like ours when a hurricane is imminent. They become nutty.

  3. I'm glad you and your family are OK!!
    I also have some numbers written on my calendar, and I can't remember why I wrote them!!! And I'm worried... maybe they were important???

  4. Oh I'm jealous... I was born and raised in Michigan, and I miss it so. I haven't been back in something like three years. Stop by Holland for me, and visit Lake Michigan ;-)

    I remember that, growing up hearing tornado warnings a lot. It does get scary. I'm glad you're all doing okay, and I hope it stays that way. Have a fun safe trip! You deserve to have a relaxing time.
